Where You Been…Where You Going!
One of my favorite movies is Mahogany w/ My #1 Diva Crush Diana Ross. In the movie Diana Ross as Tracy Chambers, a poor African-American woman who rises to become a popular fashion designer in Rome. But that’s not just the logistics of why love the movie, I’m not a fashion designer, that’s not my coarse. I love the passion she is willing to go above & beyond her dreams, even though she endured bumps in the road, she sat out for something bigger as to where she wanted to go with her dreams.
My passion is community relations, and as I view my vision board daily, there is always something that needs to be done. I love people and I love to see people prosper in their business, their personal lives, their friendships, empowerment & education…that’s how my baby of The Evolution! Society began.
“Effective visions prepare for the future but honor the past.” Do you have a set course in your life, an established direction, outlined with purposeful thought? Or are you simply a boat floating on the water with a broken rudder, able to be pushed whichever way the wind blows, governed by the tides and external forces?
Productive people have given a great deal of thought and time to planning their courses of action and life goals. Their daily, weekly, and monthly activities all roll up to a mission statement, life goals, long-term and short-term goals, and project plans. To be the guide of your own life, you have to get a hold of the rudder.
Much like a corporate mission statement, your personal mission statement defines who you are, what you’re all about, and why you’re here. Why do you need a personal mission statement?
· It helps you make difficult decisions when faced with the myriad of choices life presents to you
· It helps you realize how very little time you truly have to accomplish the important things in your life
· It helps you recognize when you’re off course and steers you back in the right direction
Life is precious, and time is short. The best engineer cannot create more time, and the best scientist cannot invent more time. We all have the exact same amount of time—24 hours a day, 168 hours every week, 86,400 seconds every day. Once it’s gone, you can’t get it back. You cannot accumulate time or borrow tomorrow’s time. Since it feels like we have plenty of time left, we take for granted our 86,400 seconds every day.
What does your vision look like?
Diana Ross – Theme From Mahogany Lyrics
Do you know where you’re going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you
Where are you going to?
Do you know?
Do you get
What you’re hoping for
When you look behind you
There’s no open door
What are you hoping for?
Do you know?
